Vacancy on Alameda Countywide BPAC
Submitted By Rochelle Wheeler
Join the Countywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) and make recommendations to improve walking and biking in Alameda County. There is one vacancy on this Committee which advises the Alameda County Transportation Commission (CTC) and staff on the development and implementation of bicycle and pedestrian plans and programs, including a countywide grant program.
All BPAC members must be Alameda County residents and are appointed for a two-year term. The current vacancy is for the "transit representative seat," which is a new position. The Alameda CTC makes this appointment for a member who can represent bicycling and walking in general, and in particular, how they relate to transit. The BPAC typically meets six to eight times per year, in the evening, at the Alameda CTC offices in Downtown Oakland.
Although the appointee for this vacancy may live anywhere in Alameda County, to balance the current BPAC membership, the agency is seeking a candidate from the County Supervisorial District 1 area (the cities of Dublin and Livermore; most of the city of Fremont; a portion of the unincorporated community of Sunol; and most of the unincorporated area of the Livermore-Amador Valley). Note that the boundaries of the supervisorial districts were revised within the last year and this district no longer includes Pleasanton and now includes Dublin.
Please submit your application form to Angie Ayers at AAyers@AlamedaCTC.org for consideration. The vacancy is open until filled; however, the deadline for applications is Friday, April 27, 2012.
For questions, contact Rochelle Wheeler at (510) 208-7471 or RWheeler@AlamedaCTC.org.
